Local news needs your support

We’re expanding, not shrinking, our coverage of Salem during this pandemic because it’s so essential for the community.
Our reporting team at Salem Reporter is working long, hard hours to bring you credible, up-to-date information on the novel coronavirus outbreak.
We are posting stories online with verified facts from authoritative sources. The news team is keeping up with the ever-changing situation with schools, with the challenges to businesses and employers and with the health of the community. We just added photographers to help chronicle how life is changing before our eyes.
At Salem Reporter, we decided it was an essential public service to provide free access to our stories on coronavirus. We will continue to do so. We don’t want a single family, a single employer left to guess what to do because they can’t get the right information.
To allow that to continue, you can help with a tax-deductible donation – yes, tax deductible – to be sure we can keep our staff going. Help us today and we’ll help you in the challenging weeks and months to come. Our support from the community is growing, and we invest that right back into expanding news coverage as much as we can possibly afford to do so. We’re dependent on the people of Salem. Help us today with your deduction and we’ll help Salem face and overcome this once-in-a-lifetime community crisis.
Thank you for your time and considering joining us as a partner.

Les & Associates: Please keep up the good work and well written facts you provide to your reading public. Having worked with the Yakama Valley Farmers (Toppinish Washington) myself during the years past, I think I could have guessed why the COVID 19 virus was going to hit the rural farm working community of Woodburn so hard. Good luck with West Salem...I wish I had something to share.

Your story about the Church of the Nazarene congregation was both heartbreaking and encouraging. We'll get through this together and the Salem Reporter will keep us informed.
